With the local nobility supernaturally terrorized into a charitable mood, the Disciples of the Depths move on to the main event. Unfortunately someone tipped off their rivals in the Church of the Weeping Lady, so the battle for the hearts and wallets of Doskvol begins in earnest...

Season's Greeting listeners! For our holiday horror special, here comes a slippery caper of Blades in the Dark!

With the terror of famine hovering like the ever present Doskvol fog, the Disciples of the Depths spring into action in what may be the biggest canned food scam the city has ever seen. After all, it is much easier to be faithful with a full belly, and if those nobles aren't in a giving spirit yet then perhaps they need some convincing... 

Will Miss Ruby the Spider, Vand the Whisper and Veleris the Hound be able to push some good-natured nuns out of the pickled eel racket?

Join the Liberation Industries crew as they take John Harper and Evil Hat's gripping crime romp Blades in the Dark for a spin.

Nothing is ever simple in Doskvol... at least not for cultists of the Lord of the Depths trying to spread the good word to the unbelievers. Will Vand the Whisper, Veleris the Hound and Miss Ruby the Spider be able to secure a haunted artifact without too many explosions or murders?

Of course not. But its the journey that's exciting.

Only in Shadowrun I suppose...

In the debris left by the carnage of the richest packmate's eighteenth birthday party, Crescent Head teen lycanthropes Alex, Ava and Sleeves try to seize the best plan to slay their Beshilu nemesis. Which for Sleeves means restyling her wardrobe, Alex hitting the milk bar, and Ava getting in touch with her other nemesis.

Note: Ava's player had to take a phone call about halfway through this one, so she's absent for a decent chunk of it. She'll be back next episode... I hope...
